Our Mission Statement
The central theme of Dallas Baptist University's mission statement is to train students to be servant leaders in their communities. The University Writing Center staff recognizes the correlation between clear effective communication and strong leadership. Therefore, it is the Writing Center's purpose to offer student support in communication skills at any level and any discipline through consultation with qualified and trained writing consultants in a special facility set aside for this use. In this manner, students' leadership abilities can be enhanced with strong communication skills. It is also the purpose of the Writing Center to offer strong support to the faculty of Dallas Baptist University in their efforts to stress to their students the importance of a strong writing ability for a strong leadership profile.
Writing Across the Curriculum
The Writing Center staff adheres to the concept of "Writing Across the Curriculum." Learning to write effectively entails the application of critical thinking and judicious feeling to the end that one may capably, clearly, and precisely express vocational, domestic, and philosophical ideas. Therefore, writing can be used as a tool of learning in any discipline.
